How I Use It
My students use it to create citations in MLA format for their research papers.
My Take
The tool is quick and easy to use, but it is not always accurate. If the first person to use a site manually enters the information incorrectly, that incorrect citation will appear for every subsequent citer of that cite! Also, the free version is loaded with advertisements and has begun requiring my students to watch a video advertisement to get their citation. I now have moved to Citation Machine which is as good as easybib without the excessive advertising, and it INCLUDES INSTRUCTION if students need it.
